On June 22, the Limestone County Sportsman’s Club held its annual Free Fishing Rodeo at our club pond at Kennedy and Oakdale roads. We had 47 children between the ages of 5-15 attend the event.
We would like to thank our sponsors. Without their help, we could not have provided prizes and food for the day. Thank you to:
• The Alabama Veterans Museum;
• Alfa Insurance (Don Blevins);
• Dixie Auto Parts;
• Eastside Pharmacy (Billy and Monique Cannon);
• Haney Equipment;
• Edward Jones (Rob Phraner);
• LawLer’s Barbecue;
• Pepsi of Decatur; and
• Publix of Athens.
Thanks also to Sgt. Travis Gray and Lt. Wendell Fulks of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources for the four telescoping rods they brought as donations. Thank you to all the parents, grandparents and friends who attended. We hope to see you all next year.
